Low-Fat Fish Oil Diet leads to Lower Cell Cycle Progression in Patients with Prostate Cancer

Low-Fat Fish Oil Diet leads to Lower Cell Cycle Progression in Patients with Pro

It has been revealed by a study that eating a low-fat diet and taking fish oil supplements helps men with prostate cancers to have  lower levels of pro-inflammatory substances in their blood and a lower cell cycle progression score. The study was conducted by UCLA researchers.

The findings have significant implications for prostate cancer as its development could be restricted to prevent a person from eventually suffering with more aggressive cancer.

William Aronson is a clinical professor of urology at UCLA and chief of urologic oncology at the West Los Angeles Veterans Affairs Medical Center. He is also the lead author of the study.

"We found that CCP scores were significantly lower in the prostate cancer in men who consumed the low-fat fish oil diet as compare to men who followed a higher fat Western diet", said Aronson.

He added that there were reduced blood levels of pro-inflammatory substances in men who consumed low-fat oil diet. Pro-inflammatory substances are associated with cancer.

Also, the study found that low-fat fish oil helped men change the composition of their cell membranes. It was in both healthy cells and the cancer cells in the prostate. Aronson is of the view that altering the diet could be highly effective for the biology of prostate cancer.
